Patron Pack Bundle, $304.97 from Dan Murphy’s
Do you ever scratch your head wondering what the difference between tequilas is?
Joey shares information on each of the three main varieties of Patrón.
“Patrón Silver is best with light and refreshing options, i.e. soda, lime, tonic and cucumber, pineapple, or mixed into a margarita,” he says.
“Patrón Reposado is also a lighter style but it’s the step up for the ultimate margarita, try a margarita from Tommy. It also works great with grapefruit and soda and a great cocktail is the Patrón Paloma.
Meanwhile, the Patrón Anejo has “deeper whiskey-style notes” according to Joey and “best enjoyed over ice, with a slice of orange.”
Want a taste of all three? Opt for the bundle pack, which contains a 700ml bottle of each.
